Re: Song of the South?
I tried to do some research using data from the Renewals listed here in Archive.org.
I checked 1971, 1972 and 1973 since being it a 1946 movie it was supposed to be renewed in 1972 (Disney rereleased it in that year).
According to http://chart.copyrightdata.com/ch07.html
"For works copyrighted 1923-1950, for copyright renewal to be valid, renewal had to occur between the 27th and 28th anniversaries of the date that the initial copyright term began."
This is the renewal I've found:
Walt Disney's Song of the South.
By staff of Walt Disney Productions.
© 12Nov46; AA28970. Walt Disney
Productions (PWH); 3Dec73; R564892.
It seems well out of that time frame.
